Riding in Sydney

After getting my L's, we bought a moped about four or so months ago. We practised diligently in the back streets. And now we ride pretty much anywhere. And it's great fun.

On the cost side of things it's definitely cheaper than a second car (we've sold ours) or public transport. It costs less than $10 to fill the tank (just 7 litres) which covers more than week of riding to and from work. Rego and insurance are much cheaper too. But you do need gear, eg. jacket ($150), helmet ($200) and so on.

License Tests Too Easy?

I'm in the process of obtaining my motorcycle riders license. I thought I'd make a start on the knowledge tests. So I decided to take the online practice test before I brushed up on my road rules and read the motorcycle-specific rules for the first time. I figured this would give me an idea of how much work I needed to put in.
